Even in the best of times, keeping up with life’s daily demands can throw any of us off-kilter. And let’s be real, 2020 has brought with it a host of challenges that trigger stress.
When the going gets tough, sometimes you need to talk to a therapist, friend or family member to keep you grounded. And while nothing can replace a pep talk or a good piece of advice from a professional, there is another component to well being: self-care.
And who couldn’t use a little or a lot more of that these days? With that in mind, we’ve gathered up a collection of monthly subscriptions focused on mental health and wellness.
No, they may not be a cure all for all the cray-cray that’s going on in the world out there.
But they are a great way to remind us to let go of the things we can’t control and put the focus back on ourselves.
Some of the subscriptions in our collection are based on coaching or motivation. Some involve cognitive therapy or the power of positive thinking. And many of the subscriptions are a combination of self-growth tools and items like body products, teas and essential oils to pamper ourselves during “me time.”
Whether you subscribe for a loved one or for yourself, these 15 monthly wellness boxes are a great way to get inspired, reconnect with yourself and enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
